Romney: I Never Paid Less Than 13 Percent In Taxes

August 16, 2012 8:43 a.m.

Mitt Romney said he has never paid less than a 13 percent tax rate in the past 10 years during a press availability in South Carolina Thursday. Romney said that he thought the fascination with his taxes was small-minded compared with the the bigger issues of the campaign. He said he recently went back and looked at his taxes and verified that it was never under 13 percent.

Earlier this week, Ann Romney reaffirmed that the campaign will not release more tax returns.
